Made Our Winter Wedding PERFECT!

I couldn't possibly express how much we loved working with Gretchen and her team. We had such an amazing experience, every planning and design meeting was a blast and felt like we were just out chatting with one of our best friends instead of making huge decisions that would significantly impact our wedding.

The design Gretchen meticulously put together was unimaginably gorgeous and so perfectly captured the aesthetic we both dreamt of for a winter wedding. We wanted to lean into our love of the season without dragging out anything reminiscent of the holiday season. Gretchen did miss a single detail along the way, everything was thought of, communicated, planned-for, handled, and executed perfectly.

Gretchen brought with her so much knowledge of the wedding landscape in the Twin Cities and expertly guided us through every decision, from venue to caterer down to glassware and flatware. We had specific desires, especially regarding arguably minute details. We ended up with exactly what we wanted, every single time.

Beyond all of that amazing work, having Gretchen there on the day of our wedding was priceless. Everything was exactly where it needed to be, exactly when it needed to be there. It was important to us that our wedding be well-executed and that our guests be wowed by the event. It's been over three months and it's still the first thing everyone brings up when we talk.

I wish it was possible to communicate how thrilled we are that we chose to work with Gretchen and the Rocket Science team. They are truly one of the biggest reasons our wedding was the single best day we've ever had.

My husband and I chose Rocket Science Weddings and Events to help on the day of our wedding because we wanted our family and friends to be guests (rather than have responsibilities) on our special day. This was, by far, one of the best planning decisions we made! Shorey Tuetken was absolutely fantastic!! I enjoy planning, so we hired her only for "day of" services, but she dedicated far more time than just the day of the event. We met multiple times in the months leading up to the event so that she could make sure she understood my “vision” and make a plan for an efficient execution the day of the wedding. She was open-minded, organized, very flexible, had great suggestions when I ran into planning hurdles, and a delight to work with. Rocket Science was worth every penny! We were able to relax, have fun, and enjoy our guests rather than worry about details. Thank you for helping us create the wedding of our dreams!

Gretchen and the Rocket Science Weddings and Events crew delivered with perfection in planning and seamlessly executing our wedding. With our early mornings, late nights and crazy schedules we knew that a planner was necessary to pull off the wedding we were hoping for. From day one Gretchen was very candid about what she would bring to the table and throughout the 15 months of planning was always accessible to listen, provide input and just have fun! We started with an unwieldy vision of a medieval-chic feast covered in antlers and gold and Gretchen took it from look-book to reality beyond what we could have imagined. A million times, thank you Gretchen and Rocket Science Weddings and Events!

I truly enjoy working with Gretchen. She has this efficient calm about her on the wedding day and does so much behind the scenes that the bride and groom don't even know about. I love her frank approach to design and her talent of getting right to the heart of what a couple wants their wedding day to look like.

Gretchen at Rocket Science Weddings and Events is like the spoonful of sugar that helps the medicine go down. Wedding planning is a lot of work and can be really overwhelming. But, hiring Rocket Science means your planning is going to get done with your sanity intact and that you're actually going to have fun doing it. (Pun intended) It's not rocket science- hire Gretchen.
